Travellers' Choice
The Armada Hotel is located in Spanish Point, West Clare; a place reflecting all that's good about the West of Ireland and the Atlantic Coast. The hotel reflects its' locality in its' food offerings, with local and Irish artisan food and beers. It offers stunning Atlantic views with many rooms overlooking the coastline as well as beautiful views from the Pearl Restaurant and the Ocean Bistro. Located on the beautiful coastline of County Clare, the Armada is close to some of Ireland's most visited sites including the Cliffs of Moher, Loop Head Penninsula, The Burren and the Aran Islands. For golfers, the renowned Doonbeg and Lahinch Golf Courses are a short drive away and Spanish Point Golf Club, recently voted the Best 9-Hole Golf Course in Munster is just a 3 minute walk from the hotel. Right on the hotel’s doorstep there is a host of outdoor activities to choose from, some hotel recommendations include surfing on Spanish Point beach, kayaking at the White Strand, cycling around Loop Head and exploring the spectacular Cliffs of Moher Trail Walk. You can also check out the local 5km run or walk up the Bog Walk Loop or do a spot of seashore foraging too. Cosy Johnny Burke's pub is where the history began over 50 years ago, from the the musician's corner to the rebel snug,you’ll find photos and artefacts which tell the story of the Armada. It’s a welcome retreat after a day spent exploring and is not only famous for its' traditional music and turf fire but of course the unique warm west Clare welcome too!

Just back from our one night stay at the Armada hotel, food was delicious (as always) and they have a great wine selection! Staff are so friendly and very welcoming! Special mention to Pat (I think that’s his name!) who looked after us in the ballroom to find us a table and chairs for the evening! We would stay at the Armada regularly and we have always had a great stay on each occasion! They have done a fantastic job throughout the hotel with renovations, we had a window seat for dinner in the pearl restaurant and the views were stunning! Looking forward to booking our next stay with ye again soon!

Hi Trip Advisor member, Thanks for giving us an excellent 5 star review and for choosing to return to us for your Summer holidays. We did indeed make lots of positive updates to the hotel during lockdown and we are delighted that these changes enhanced your stay. The views from the Pearl restaurant and the Ocean Bistro are very special and I was glad to see that you managed to secure one of our popular window seats. Glad to read too that you enjoyed our wine list selected by our consultant sommelier John Mc Donnell to accompany each restaurant dish. Thanks again for your lovely feedback which will be shared with our team here, Looking forward to your next visit, Regards, Fiona Buckley Kitt Sales & Marketing Director

10/10 for my stay at this wonderful hotel. The views over Spanish point are excellent. The food options are varied and all great value. I particularly enjoyed the Catch food trucks fish and chips with loads of seating overlooking the beach. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating on everything from checking in on how everything was going to giving recommendations. I will 100% be back to stay at The Armada!

We had pizza at the Pizza Area beside and part of the Armada Hotel on the evening of June 9th . We rang the hotel first to find out if we could order in advance by phone and whoever answered the call said to phone back later, this happened 3 times. We then drove to the hotel to order and an extremely rude man (one of the more mature employees) told me in a very impolite manner that they don’t take phone orders. I told him what had happened and he said it was ‘nothing to do with him’ and that I should go into the hotel to tell them. I suggested that as he was a staff member of the hotel that he should inform the hotel of the policy for pizza sales. I found him obnoxious in his manner. Someone obviously then informed a hotel manager who apologised to me nicely and politely. A lovely girl served me and appeared embarrassed by the manner of the pizza guy who I would say was some sort of supervisor. The pizzas were very nice after all that.

Hi Tim, Thanks very much for taking the time to tell us about your visit here and apologies that we fell short on giving you the proper information on our ordering process for our pizzeria. Our experienced team are aware that we don't take pre-orders for our Little Johnny's Pizza but as we have over 40 new crew members, it seems likely that you spoke with one of our trainees who may still not have the answer for every question but who are doing their utmost to assist our guests during this busy time so thank you for your patience. We are delighted that you enjoyed our pizzas as they are all made fresh here in the hotel using ingredients from our own farm and local food producers. Thanks again for stopping by and for your support, we really appreciate it and I hope that we will have the pleasure of welcoming you back soon again. Kind regards, Fiona Buckley Kitt, Sales & Marketing Director, Armada Hotel

Spanish Point is a far more welcoming place now than it was for the Spanish Armada. And that's thanks to the gorgeous Armada Hotel and the brilliantly warm and friendly staff there. I stayed with some cyclists on the way from Mizen to Malin Head and it was an oasis. Great rooms, food and the team there were exceptional. Thanks again and I'll be back with the family in tow as soon as we can!
